fixtures for quick measuring: premeasured spacer

Do you have to adjust a machine or tool to a certain distance? You might struggle doing this with a ruler every time you set up your machine.

If you have a standard distance, you can use a premeasured, off-the-shelf item to do this, such as a dowel rod.

You can also create a set of items to use for spacing.

This set of spacers was created to make it easy to change the setup from anywhere from 1/8" to 4"

To set up the machine for a 0.75" cut, I take the appropriate item and move both parts of the machine until they touch the spacer. then I tighten it down. No more rulers during setup!
